Reed set to make MXGP wildcards

1 of 1

Australian Supercross legend Chad Reed will make a sensational return to the MXGP series for the first time in fifteen years, with two wildcard appearances in Italy and at next month’s Matterley Basin round in the UK.

Returning to MXGP since his sole season in the championship in 2001, where he finished second as a rookie before continuing on to America to become a two-time AMA champion.

“I have always valued my one and only year in Europe and I'm so excited to come back after all these years. I briefly mentioned it on social media and many UK and European fans have shown lots of enthusiasm so that in return makes it a ton of fun for me. I haven't really given any thought to the racing itself I'm just excited to see old faces and new fans.”
